About Sherri Smith

Jon and I were married in 1988. We spent our honeymoon in nearby Chimney Rock. We reside in Kernersville, NC where we were both born and raised. We are parents to 3 wonderful children; Owen, Hannah and Molly. Jon has been employed with Tyco Electronics since 1994. He is a drummer and has played with several bands over the years. He now enjoys playing in our praise and worship band at church. I have spent most of our married life as an at-home mom. I have been blessed to provide child care for some precious children who have touched my life deeply. I have taught pre-school, worked as a substitute teacher in our local schools and worked full time with special needs children where God taught me things I would never have learned otherwise. I am participated in my first international mission trip in the summer of 2012. I accompanied a small group from my local church to Malawi, Africa where we worked with orphans, widows, and special needs children.I returned in the spring of 2014. These trips have been amazing and I hope to be able to return many more times. Jon and I have been greatly blessed and look forward to the opportunity to share our blessings with you.

Sherri Smith purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sherri Smith chose Bat Cave

We had always vacationed at Ocean Isle Beach. Because Jon loves the mountains so much I decided to try something different the summer of 2011. I began to search online for places in the mountains that still provided swimming and sunbathing opportunities. While browsing on VRBO one day I came across a house in Bat Cave. I booked it for a long weekend and we were hooked! We booked a second visit and it was during that visit that we discovered the little house for sale. We fell in love with it and purchased it several months later. We love the fact that there is so much to do in the area. Our daughter loves to visit the nearby wolf sanctuary/rescue. There is swimming, horseback riding, kayaking,hiking,rock climbing, repelling, ziplining, shopping, and so much more.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the quiet, peaceful surroundings. The colors of fall are spectacular! Spring is beautiful and full of color. The wildlife is abundant. We leave all our cares at home!

Perfect Mountain Cottage!!! Will definitely return!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family just spent the weekend at this Bat Cave Mountain Cabin and we had such a wonderful time! The owners are very easy to work with and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable! Upon arriving we were told by the owners that they just discovered the fridge wasn't cooling properly and that they were going to purchase a new one and it would be delivered that afternoon. Within a couple hours a brand new fridge was delivered and installed!

The cabin was very nicely decorated, had everything we needed and had many movies to choose from for my children to watch in the evenings. My entire family thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and the river! It was a great weekend getaway and we are already planning our next trip!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for relaxation in the mountains and we definitely found it here! Modern, clean, well-equipped facility with easy access to Asheville and Hendersonville, but remote enough to truly be a getaway retreat. Great mountain attractions(Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, Black Mountain, etc) are nearby. Great property for privacy or for family/friends gathering. Owners dropped by to be sure we had everything we needed...very nice folks. We will definitely use this property again!

The best get away I've had in years

The best get away I've had in years

My wife and I and another couple rented the this cottage for a long weekend in January of this year, I cannot stress enough how great the property was and how accommodating the owners were to work with. The cottage was very well kept, the hot tub was amazing and the view and sound of the creek in the back yard is indescribable. I can speak for all of us that weekend it was the most relaxing weekend we all have had in several years and we look forward to renting this cottage in the up coming summer.

Well located for Rumbling Bald and Chimney Rock

  • 5 of 5
This was a great cabin and I'd stay here again. It was conveniently close to Chimney Rock and Rumbling Bald, super clean, comfortable furniture, and a nicely appointed kitchen. We also enjoyed the hot tub. Being able to have our Brittany Spaniel with us was an added bonus!

We loved being able to hop in the car and escape for a few days. Space is very cozy - really sleeps 4 with 2 spots on loft for kids. Loved the hot tub and would come back. The stove top was a little hard to work with but other than that we loved the space
